Henry Cowell Musical Autobiography


Published April 6, 1961


Henry Cowell talks about his life and plays examples of his music from his entire career as a composer—a fascinating document. He mentions the diversity interests from his childhood, giving up violin at age 8, hearing Irish tunes hummed by his father, early American Ozark mountain tunes sung by his mother. Living in San Francisco, he was exposed to international influences, playing and humming along with his Japanese, Chinese & Tahitian playmates.
